Garlic Prawn and Cucumber Appetizers - Christmas RecipesMethod

Dry Prawns with a paper towel, before placing in mixing bowl. Add 1 tbsp of olive oil, the garlic, black pepper and cayenne pepper. Gently toss and allow to marinate for 15 – 20 minutes. As you’re about to cook the prawns – toss salt through the mixture.

Cook in two batches. Heat ½ tbsp oil and 1 tbsp butter in a pan per batch. Once butter is melted, cook for one minute on each side until the prawn is a light golden colour. Repeat for second batch. Then, add first batch back to the pan, add the wine and stir until the wine has mostly evaporated.

Add another tbsp of butter and lemon juice. Allow butter to melt, then stir for half a minute and remove from stove.

Place individual prawns on a cucumber slice and serve.
